Zip Hydrotap water boiler and chiller

Under-sink boiling & chilled water units that fit compactly into your kitchen cupboard

Boiling water. Tea, coffee or any hot beverage can be made in a flash, while adding instant boiling water to a pot of noodles makes a tasty snack in no time. The Zip HydroTaps’ smart logic allows the system to calibrate boiling point at any altitude ensuring it operates to specification independent of altitude by the touch of the non-slip pad that will show red for boiling water. Chilled water Press the blue button and the Zip HydroTap delivers filtered chilled drinking water in an instant. No more waiting for the fridge or having to use ice cubes. Eliminates the expense of buying bottled, filtered water.

Filter cartridge available:

  • < 3 micron: #2330160
  • 5 Micron: #2330197

Two “sleep modes” can be set to “power down” the appliance either after 2 or 4 hours of inactivity. In sleep mode the water temperature is kept at approximately 64°C by “phasing” the power supply as required. In addition, the HydroTap can be manually adjusted from 90°C to 99°C.

Zip HydroTap only dispenses water at the desired operating temperature thus conserving water. As the system is air-cooled you will not have water waste as is the case with some water-cooled systems – saving you time and energy in your kitchen every day.

HydroTap units come with four important safety features:

  • Child- proof safety lock prevents accidental scalding
  • Patented vented system for more reliable operation
  • Leakage protection system with a built- in safety tray
  • HydroTaps’ smart logic can be programmed to disable the dispensing of boiling water when required.
